More Christians imprisoned in Iran

The condition of an imprisoned pastor in Iran has worsened since he was given a five-year prison term for converting from Islam to Christianity -- which Iranian authorities claim to be a crime against national security.

When Behnam Irani was examined about a month ago, doctors advised surgery. Jason DeMars of Present Truth Ministries tells OneNewsNow the pastor's health has continued to get worse.

"The last I've heard from our sources is that he's lost another ten pounds in about the last three months, and his skin is like a yellowish color," DeMars reports. "He's not healthy, and he's still being denied medical attention from the authorities there in the Ghezal Hezar prison there in Karaj, Iran."
